Indians' Michael Brantley: Held out of lineup Monday

Brantley is not in the lineup Monday against the Orioles.

Although Brantley is expected to be activated from the paternity list ahead of Monday's contest, the Indians will instead keep him out of action for one more day. The veteran outfielder missed the past five games to attend to the birth of his child, but he was playing well before then, batting .311 with nine RBI in the prior 16 games. Austin Jackson will man left field in his stead, but look for Brantley to return to action Tuesday.
